    Hi, I'm trying to launch a .command file on my mac desk top, but when the terminal opens, it says that there is no Java Runtime Enviroment (JRE) found on this machine. I've done all the updates and I have Java 1.6 loaded. I have changed the preferences from 64 bit to 32 and it still doesn't work. Do you guys have any idea why Java won't launch?

    The file I'm trying to open was downloaded from here in case it helps: http://www.lowrance.com/en/Download...date-Version-2_5_31_56-with-micro-SD-support/

    It's a update for a depth finder. I clicked the Mac/OsX version and loaded that to my desk top. I'm then supposed to double click the file to launch the install wizard that loads the file to my SD card. (This is where I'm stuck) I then take the card to the depth finder and it updates. Thanks for any help.

    Odds are that the application isn't using the recommended method for finding an appropriate JRE to use, and instead just has a per-OS path hardcoded. Bad application developer!
